Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Brussels sprouts are one of those vegetables that every child and some adults turns their noses up at. I admit that I have always been one of those people, but realized that I had never really tried them before. They are so pretty, and anything that pretty can’t be terrible, right?

I decided to keep my preparation simple, not adding a lot of butter and cream, but by tossing them in a little bit of olive oil and roasting them in the oven until they caramelized a bit. I must say they were surprisingly good. How had I never had Brussels sprouts before?

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

  • 16 0z. of fresh Brussels sprouts (depending on how many people you are serving, I don’t think that it matters how many you are roasting)
  • 3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • salt to taste

Preheat the oven to 375°. Boil halved Brussels sprouts in abundant boiling water for about 5 minutes. Drain and toss with olive oil  and salt. Lightly brush a baking sheet with olive oil and arrange the sprouts on it cut side down. Roast until the sprouts are lightly browned on their cut sides, about 20 minutes.
